Abstract

Description

  • The invention relates to a laying device for laying wire windings in transponder units, in particular for the production of chip cards, according to the preamble of patent claim 1, a contacting device for contacting the wires according to the preamble of claim 20, a delivery system for delivering processing devices according to the preamble of claim 30 , a laying and contacting unit according to claim 35, a manufacturing plant for the production of transponder units according to the preamble of patent claim 38, a process for the production of transponder units according to the preamble of claim 55 and a transponder unit according to the preamble of patent claim 60.
  • Transponder units are used, for example, in smart cards such as biometric passports. They are used for storing and transmitting information and consist essentially of a wire coil, which is composed of individual wire windings, and is connected at its end portions with a chip. The wire coil serves as an antenna for transmission and information on the chip. Usually, the transponder unit is inserted directly into a substrate. The embedding of the wire in the substrate or the connection of the end portions thereof to the chip takes place by means of ultrasound or thermal welding.
  • In known chip cards, the chips are arranged on a chip module for enlarging their pads and positioned over this on the substrate.
  • On such smart cards is disadvantageous that are increased by the chip modules substantially the cost of materials.
  • A device for producing such a chip card is in the EP 0 880 754 B1 shown. The laying device has a sonotrode and an ultrasonic converter for applying an ultrasonic guided in the sonotrode insulated wire. As a result of the vibrations, the wire is heated with its insulation and "hammered" into the substrate during installation.
  • A disadvantage of this solution is that the wire is inserted laterally into the sonotrode, whereby a diagonal bore for receiving the wire must be formed in the sonotrode and the sonotrode has a complex geometry. The threading of the wire in the oblique bore is done manually, which is correspondingly time consuming and costly.
  • A known contacting device for connecting the end portions of the wire to the chip has a thermode, which is heated and pressed against the end portions, so that by temperature and pressure of the wire, these are welded to the chip. The thermode is arranged between clamping bodies, which are clamped together by means of clamping screws.
  • The disadvantage of this solution is that to change the thermode, the clamping screws must be released manually.
  • To deliver a laying device or contacting usually spindle motors are used, which are connected for damping of overshoot of the motors via damping elements with the respective device.
  • However, spindle motors have limited dynamics. In addition, unwanted vibrations are introduced into the delivery system via the damping elements. Furthermore, spindle motors require a separate braking mechanism to prevent unwanted displacements in the vertical direction due to gravity.
  • According to the EP 0 880 754 B1 In known methods for the production of chip cards, the wires are subjected to vertical ultrasonic vibrations when laying on the substrate. That is, the ultrasonic vibrations extend in the longitudinal direction of the wire leading sonotrode.
  • A disadvantage of this method, however, is that soiling, for example wire insulation, can be "hammered" into the substrate.
  • For the industrial production of smart cards, several laying devices and contacting devices are combined in a manufacturing plant. Such systems are usually constructed in gantry design. A well-known portal construction method is in the EP 0 880 754 B1 disclosed. The gantries have essentially two vertical supports positioned on opposite longitudinal sides of a machine bed and one transverse girder interconnecting the vertical supports. The devices are arranged according to the order of operations in groups sorted on the cross members side by side and deliverable via a vertical movement of the cross member in the vertical direction.
  • The gantry design has the disadvantage that the accessibility and thus the observability of the manufacturing process due to the vertical supports is severely limited. Furthermore, it is disadvantageous that a space available at the cross members for fastening the processing devices is greatly limited, so that the productivity is severely limited.
  • Object of the present invention is a laying device for laying wires of a transponder unit, a contacting device for contacting the wires, a delivery system for delivering processing equipment, a laying and contacting, a manufacturing plant for the production of transponder units, a method for producing transponder units and To provide transponder unit, which eliminate the aforementioned disadvantages and allow safe and cost-effective production.
  • This object is achieved by a laying device with the features of claim 1, a contacting device with the features of claim 20, a delivery system with the features of claim 30, a laying and contacting unit with the features of claim 35, a manufacturing plant with the features according to claim 38, a method with the features according to claim 55 and a transponder unit with the features according to claim 60.
  • A laying device according to the invention has a sonotrode for laying the wire on a substrate and an ultrasonic converter for acting on the sonotrode with ultrasonic vibrations. According to the invention, the wire can be fed axially to the laying device.
  • The axial wire feed has the advantage that no oblique bore must be formed in the sonotrode and the sonotrode is accordingly easy to carry out. Due to the simplified design of the sonotrode their weight can be reduced, which allows an increase in the ultrasonic vibrations, for example from the usual 40 kHz to about 60 kHz.
  • A preferred embodiment provides an axial passage for receiving the wire, which passes through the laying device axially.
  • In order to minimize the friction of the wire in the passageway, the wire may be guided via an air bearing in the passageway. For this purpose, a radial bore for injecting compressed air may be provided in a wire insertion region of the through-channel. It may be advantageous to heat the compressed air to about 50 ° C to 60 ° C in order to achieve a preheating of the wire or its insulation and to shorten the cycle time for laying.
  • One embodiment provides to improve the air bearing to taper the passage in the head region of the sonotrode radially to form a kind of back pressure. For example, if the diameter of the through-channel is 3 mm, it is preferably reduced to about 300 μm measured in the head region over an axial length of about 2 mm to 3 mm from its outlet opening.
  • To minimize wear of the sonotrode at the output port, it is advantageous if the sonotrode is rotatably mounted in the laying device, so that the wire is not applied to a local area of the outlet opening, but comes into contact with a plurality of local areas, so that in operation, the entire peripheral area of the outlet opening is partially uniformly loaded. Such rotational movements can be achieved in that the ultrasonic converter is floating, preferably by aerostatic guidance stored. In this case, the ultrasound converter may be formed with two annular shoulders, which limit an annular space to be impacted with compressed air, preferably in the range of approximately 6 bar.
  • In order to automate feeding of the wire to the passageway, a feed means may be provided which grips the inserted end portion of the wire and inserts it into the passageway. In this case, an embodiment provides to perform the feed device like a claw and relatively movable to the laying device.
  • The ultrasonic converter can in principle be arranged as desired to the sonotrode. In one embodiment, it is positioned with its longitudinal axis coaxial with the longitudinal axis of the sonotrode, the passageway extending therethrough. In another embodiment, it is arranged laterally to the sonotrode. The lateral arrangement has the advantage that the sonotrode is even easier to carry out and thus the laying device with even higher frequencies, for example, beyond 100 kHz, can be operated. In this case, in the lateral arrangement, the introduction of the ultrasonic waves in the sonotrode preferably transversely to its longitudinal axis, ie in the horizontal direction.
  • In a preferred embodiment, the longitudinal axis of the ultrasound converter is arranged offset by an offset radially offset to the longitudinal axis of a housing which supports the ultrasound converter.
  • In another preferred embodiment, the wire may be freed from its insulation within the laying apparatus.
  • An inventive contacting device for contacting wires, in particular with chips, has a clamping arrangement for clamping a thermode. According to the invention, the clamping arrangement has clamping jaws which are automatically biased against each other, so that the thermode is clamped.
  • An advantage of this solution is that the manually operated clamping screws omitted.
  • In a preferred embodiment, the clamping assembly has a fixed and a movable jaw, wherein the movable jaw is formed like a lever and biased by a spring against the fixed jaw. Preferably, the spring is supported on the fixed jaw.
  • To release the clamping, a displaceable wedge element can be provided, which can be brought into abutment with a wedge surface on an inclined surface of the movable clamping jaw so that the movable jaw can be swiveled and the spring can be compressed by displacement of the wedge element. This mechanism allows an automated change of the thermodes and thus enables a shortening of the thermode change time or the downtime of the contacting. The thermodes can be kept in a magazine, which is used to remove a new thermodes can be controlled accordingly by the contacting device.
  • In order to improve the contact or to avoid dangerous gases when contacting protective gas can be used, which flows around the top of the thermode during operation. As a protective gas supply protective gas channels may be formed in the jaws, which in the head region of the jaws, i. at an axial distance of about 1 mm from the tip of the thermistor, emerge from it. The protective gas supply can be optimized via a valve and a sensor for measuring the protective gas parameters, in particular the volume and the pressure. An extraction of the protective gas can be realized via a cup-like suction hood, in the interior of which dive the jaws with the thermode.
  • A feed system according to the invention for feeding processing devices, such as the laying or contacting device according to the invention, has a connecting carriage for connecting the processing device and a drive for moving the connecting carriage. According to the invention, the drive is a piezoelectric motor that works according to the piezo-leg principle.
  • Such a delivery system has the advantage that it has a very high dynamics. Furthermore, the delivery system is small and weight-saving executable because, for example, due to the self-locking of the piezo motor in Nichtbestromung a separate brake mechanism can be omitted.
  • In one embodiment, the piezo motor is formed with a multiplicity of fingers which, when energized, form an s-shaped path, ideally a sinusoid, tread. In this case, at least one finger acts on a slide, which cooperates with the connecting carriage and is preferably made of ceramic. The movement of the fingers is transferred to the slider, causing it to perform a linear movement. For better longitudinal guidance, the slide can abut with a surface facing away from the fingers on a guide shoulder and be attached with its free end portion to a guide carriage, which is connected to the connecting carriage for the processing device.
  • The guide carriage may be indirectly or directly connected to the connecting carriage. In the case of an indirect connection, a strain gauge, in particular a force gauge, is preferably arranged between the two slides, via which the displacement of the slide can be measured, so that it is possible to intervene in the control of the piezoelectric motor. In addition, the strain gauge can take on damping tasks and thus overshoot the piezo motor within certain limits, preferably up to 100 microns, compensate. On a known damping with a spring element can therefore be dispensed with, thereby avoiding negative vibrations and the high dynamics of the piezoelectric motor can be transferred to the connecting carriage.
  • A laying and contacting unit according to the invention has a laying device according to the invention and a contacting device according to the invention. The spatial summarization of the laying with the contacting device has the advantage that space-saving two methods can be performed.
  • In a preferred embodiment, the laying device and the contacting device are arranged in a common holder, which has two inventive Delivery systems in the x and y direction are movable. In the x-direction, this means a delivery in the longitudinal direction of a machine bed and in the y-direction means a shift in the plane transverse to the longitudinal direction of the machine bed. For delivery in the z-direction, ie in the vertical direction, the devices can preferably be arranged individually on each delivery system according to the invention.
  • A production system according to the invention, in particular for the production of chip cards, provides a placement station for equipping the substrate with a chip, a laying station for laying a wire on a substrate, and a contacting station for contacting the wire with the chip. According to the invention, the stations are arranged on consoles which can be moved individually in the x, y and z directions.
  • Compared to the known solutions such as the portal construction mentioned above, this console construction has the advantage that the accessibility and observation are increased, since no vertical supports block the space on the machine bed and the view. Preferably, the cycle time is about 10 s.
  • In a preferred embodiment, the brackets are arranged on a longitudinal side of a machine bed and designed like a cross slide, wherein they are movable via known spindle or linear drives.

  • To improve the adhesion of the laid wire windings on the films or the use, a coating station for applying a coating to at least the surface regions of the film or the benefit can be provided, into which the wire windings are introduced.
  • In another preferred embodiment, the transponder units may be fabricated from individual sheets that may be manually fed to the manufacturing line and subsequently manually removed after processing. This embodiment is particularly suitable for small series and allows individual placement of the transponder units. For this purpose, the manufacturing plant may comprise at least one carriage for receiving a sheet to be loaded, which is movably guided on the machine bed and the individual consoles anfährt. For returning the carriage, a return may be provided by which the carriage is returned to its initial position, d. H. the position in which the sheet to be processed has been placed on the carriage, can be guided, so that the removal of the loaded sheet from the returned carriage and placing a new sheet on this carriage can be performed by an operator. Advantageously, the return is arranged in the machine bed, so that no additional space next to the manufacturing plant is required by the return.

  • According to FIG. 1 has an embodiment of a laying device 2 according to the invention for laying an insulated wire 4 as an antenna on a substrate 6 for producing a transponder unit, for example for smart cards or for laying antennas in mobile phone housings, a recorded in a tubular housing 8 ultrasonic converter 10 and a sonotrode 12. According to the invention the wire is fed axially to the laying device 2. To guide the wire 4, a coaxial wire guide in the form of a passage channel is formed in the laying device 2, which is composed of a plurality of individual bores 14, 15, 44, 54.
  • The ultrasonic converter 10 serves to act on the sonotrode 12 and thus the wire 4 with ultrasonic vibrations in the range of about up to 60 kHz. He has a cylindrical body which is penetrated by a longitudinal axis of the sonotrode 12 coaxial through hole 14 for receiving the wire 4. With two end-side annular shoulders 17, 19 it dips into two end-side recesses 22, 24 of the housing 8, wherein an annular space 16 is formed between its outer circumferential wall 25 and an opposite inner peripheral wall 27 of the housing 8.
  • The annular space 16 is axially bounded by annular shoulder surfaces 16, 18 of the annular shoulders 17, 19 and a sealing ring 26 which dips into an end-side annular groove of the recess 20 and rests against the annular shoulder surface 18 axially, and via a sealing ring 26 in an inner circumferential groove of Housing 8 dips and abuts a portion of the outer peripheral wall 25 of the ultrasonic converter 10 is sealed in the circumferential direction. With its second annular shoulder surface 20, it rests flat against an opposite bottom surface 28 of the recess 20. Preferably, a radial clearance of the ultrasonic converter 10 in the housing 8 is about 20 microns and an axial clearance about 100 microns.
  • Via a transverse bore 34 with an internal thread, a gaseous or liquid medium can be introduced into the annular space 16, so that the ultrasonic converter 10 is mounted floating and in operation due to the generated ultrasonic vibrations can perform both rotational movements and axial movements. Preferably, compressed air is injected at a pressure of about 6 bar into the annular space 14.
  • The ultrasonic converter 10 is connected via a front-side radially stepped-back converter horn 36 with a cylindrical shaft 38 of the sonotrode 12 in connection. The converter horn 36 is preferably screwed to the ultrasound converter 10 and has an axial bore 15 coaxial with the longitudinal axis of the sonotrode 12. The converter horn 36 is also screwed to the shaft 38 of the sonotrode 12. Like in the FIG. 1 it has additionally indicated an end-side centering recess 40 into which a centering projection 41 of the sonotrode 12 engages. The centering has the advantage that the axial bore 15 of the shaft 36 is positioned exactly coaxial with the longitudinal axis of the sonotrode 12.
  • The shaft 38 merges into a conical head region 42 of the sonotrode 12. In the sonotrode 12, a through hole 44 is formed coaxially to the longitudinal axis, which extends from the centering projection 41 to an end-side outlet opening 46 in the head region 42. For better guidance of the wire 4, the through hole 44 is radially tapered in the region of the outlet opening 46. Preferably, the through-bore 44, viewed on an axial length A of approximately 2 mm to 3 mm from the outlet opening 46, has a diameter of 300 μm.
  • At the sonotrode 12 opposite end face of the ultrasonic converter 10, a bearing device 48 is arranged. The half-body 50, 53 are connected to each other at the front so that in each case one, the half-body 50, 52 axially passing conical Recess in cooperation with the other recess forms an interior 54 with an approximately diamond-shaped longitudinal cross-section. In this case, the conical recess of the in FIG. 1 shown upper half body 50 has an inlet opening 58 for the wire 4.
  • The wire guide is composed in the laying device 2 from the interior 54, the through hole 14, the axial bore 15 and the longitudinal bore 44 together. Consequently, the laying device 2 is coaxial with the longitudinal axis of the sonotrode 12 penetrated by a through-channel. Preferably, the passageway has a diameter of 3 mm, which as described above in the head region 42 of the sonotrode 12 is reduced to about 300 microns. In this case, in particular the frontal arrangement of the inlet opening 56 allows an axial feed of the wire 4th
  • Via radial bores 58, 60 or a bore star, a gaseous medium can flow into the interior 54 and thus into the wire guide, which serves for the low-friction guidance of the wire 4. Preferably, compressed air is used, so that the wire 4 is guided by means of aerostatic storage in the wire guide almost smoothly. In this case, due to the tapered region in the through-bore 44 of the sonotorde 12 in the region of the outlet opening 46 forms a back pressure, through which the guide is improved.
  • To shorten the cycle time for laying the compressed air can be preheated. A preferred temperature range is about 50 ° C to 60 ° C. By preheating in particular the insulation of the wire 4 is heated, so that the connection with the substrate 6 can be done faster.
  • For feeding and threading of the wire 4 in the inlet opening 56, a feed device 62 is provided. The feed device 62 essentially has two grippers 64, 66, of which at least one is movably mounted on a holder 68, so that a threaded end portion of the wire 4 can be grasped and selectively guided. The holder 68 is arbitrarily movable to the laying device 2, wherein it can also perform a backward movement with appropriate control. By repeating loosening, retracting, gripping and ancestors of the feed device 62, the wire 4 can be automatically conveyed step by step to the outlet opening 46. Thus, for example, it is possible to feed the wire 4 with its free end portion via the laying device 2 in an opening of a closed housing and then to move it outside of the housing on this.
  • A backward movement is particularly advantageous when the wire 4 is to be separated after laying and contacting. In such a case, the wire 4 can be torn by a backward movement in the region of the contacting (see. FIG. 4 ).
  • In a preferred embodiment is according to FIG. 1b the ultrasonic converter 10 offset in the radial direction in the housing 8, so that the composed of the individual bores 14, 15, 44 and 54 passage channel is eccentric to the housing longitudinal axis G and the outlet opening 46 radially offset by an offset V to the housing longitudinal axis G. In this case, the wire 4 is fed via the feed device 62 coaxially to the longitudinal axis L of the through-channel, so that it is guided "centrally" in the through-channel. Preferably, the offset V between the housing longitudinal axis G and the longitudinal axis L of the passageway about 0.5mm.
  • The eccentric orientation of the through-channel to the housing longitudinal axis G has the advantage that the outlet opening 46 of the sonotrode 12 is displaceable relative to the housing 8 by rotations of the ultrasonic converter 10 about its longitudinal axis. This makes it possible, in particular, to adjust the position of the laying devices 22 relative to one another in the case of a multiplicity of identical laying devices 22 for producing a plurality of transponder units at the same time. Thus, it is conceivable, for example, twelve laying devices 22 in a console or station (cf. Figures 5 . 6 and 7 ), wherein in each case six laying devices 22 in the feed direction (x-direction) behind one another and two laying devices 22 are arranged transversely to the feed direction (y-direction). The six laying devices 22 are each guided over their housing 4 in a common groove extending in the x-direction. In other words, the console has two grooves running in the x-direction, in each of which six laying devices 22 are arranged over their housing 4. For adjusting the distances between the laying devices 22 each mounted in one of the grooves in the x-direction, the laying devices 22 are freely displaceable and fixable in the groove. For adjusting the laying devices 22 in one of the grooves in the y-direction relative to one another, the ultrasound converters 10 are rotated in their respective housing 8 until, due to the eccentricity of the longitudinal axis L of the through-channel to the housing longitudinal axis, the outlet openings 46 are optimally arranged relative to one another in the y-direction ,
  • Furthermore, the in FIG. 1b shown laying device in the head portion 42 of the sonotrode 12 has a transverse bore 43 which opens into the longitudinal bore 44 and into which a sleeve 45 is inserted, through which an optical fiber or a glass fiber 47 is guided, the or with an energy source (not shown ) such as a laser in connection. Via the glass fiber 47, the laser light is guided to the wire 4 in the longitudinal bore 44, whereby it is heated and evaporated away its insulation defined, so that the wire 4 emerges as a bare copper wire from the outlet opening 46 and can be embedded in the substrate 6 or will be explained below (see. Figures 2 . 3 and 4 ), can be contacted by means of thermocompression welding with pads of a chip or contact surfaces of a chip module without the contamination could be introduced by the insulation during installation or contacting, since this has already been removed. The transverse bore 43 preferably has a diameter of 2.6 mm.
  • It is also conceivable through the transverse bore 43 and the sleeve 45 to blow heated air into the longitudinal bore 44 in order to remove the insulation of the wire 4.
  • According to FIG. 1a a cooling device 182 may be provided to prevent overheating of the wire 4 to be laid. The cooling device 182 has a nozzle that communicates with the compressed air supply of the aerostatic bearing device 48 of the laying device 2. The nozzle is arranged next to the head region 42 of the sonotrode 12 such that the wire 4 emerging from the longitudinal bore 44 or the outlet opening 46 can be flowed around by the compressed air. The cooling with compressed air has the advantage that this due to the air flow of the Wire 4 is already guided to the laying device 2 and thus no costly separate feed must be made. Of course, however, other gases are conceivable as a cooling medium.
  • FIG. 2 shows a contacting device 70 according to the invention for contacting a wire with a chip by means of temperature and pressure. Of course, the contacting device 70 can also be used for contacting a wire with a substrate. It has a clamping arrangement 72 for clamping a thermode 74 with a fixed and a movable jaw 76, 78, the head portions 80, 82 are biased by a spring 84 for clamping the thermode 74 against each other.
  • The contacting takes place by energizing the clamping arrangement 72, wherein in the region of the thermode tip 75 the greatest resistance exists, so that it is heated and heated upon depression of the thermode tip 75 on the wire this, deformed and connected to the chip.
  • To accommodate the thermode 74, the head portion 80 of the fixed jaw 76 has an axial recess 86 formed corresponding to the thermode 74. The head portion 82 of the movable jaw 78 has a correspondingly shaped but axially shortened projection 88. When properly aligned, the thermode 74 projects with its Thermodens tip 75 axially beyond the recess 86 and the projection 88 addition.
  • To accommodate the spring 84 is in the head portions 80, 82 adjoining jaw portions 90, 92 of the jaws 76, 78 each have a blind hole 94, 96 is formed on the base surfaces, the spring 84 is supported.
  • The head portion 82 of the movable jaw 78 is pivotable about a pivot axis 98, so that the thermode 74 is automatically clamped between the jaws 76, 78. To release the clamping, a wedge element 100 is provided, which is displaceable in the longitudinal direction of the thermode 74. It has a wedge surface 102, with which it can be brought into abutment with a correspondingly shaped inclined surface 104 of the jaw portion 90 of the movable clamping jaw 78.
  • Upon displacement of the wedge element 100 in the direction of the pivot axis 98, the wedge surface 102 runs on the inclined surface 104, whereby the movable jaw 78 in accordance with FIG. 2 is pivoted counterclockwise about the pivot axis 98. Consequently, the clamping of the thermode 74 is released and the spring 84 is compressed. For re-clamping, the wedge member 100 is retracted until the abutment between the wedge surface 102 and the inclined surface 104 is released, thereby relaxing the spring 84 and clamping the thermode 74. Due to the automatic clamping of the thermode 74 thus a thermode change can be automated. The automated thermode change can be performed particularly easily if the thermodes 74 are kept in a magazine that can be activated by the contacting device 70.
  • In the jaws 76, 78 at least in each case a gas channel 106, 108 is formed for supplying protective gas. For suction of the protective gas, a cup-like suction hood 110 is provided. The suction hood 110 has a coaxial opening 112 of its bottom plate, through which the clamping jaws 76, 78 can dive with their head portions into the interior of the suction hood 112. The exhaust hood 110 has the advantage that in the contacting arising toxic gases, such as hydrochloric acid, are sucked off. The gas channels 106, 108 extend at least in sections in the longitudinal direction of the contacting device 70 and exit concentrically with the thermode 74 near the tip of the thermistor 75. The protective gas effect is basically the better, the closer the gas can flow in the axial direction at the tip of the thermistor 75. Advantageously, the head portions 80, 82 have chamfered outer surfaces 114, 116, wherein the gas channels 106, 108 exit at about an axial distance of 1 mm from the thermode tip 75.
  • To control the amount of inert gas, in particular to enable oxidation-free welding, a valve, not shown, preferably a proportional valve, provided that cooperates with a sensor for detecting the inert gas parameters, such as pressure or flow, and its opening cross section according to the detected parameters adjustable is.
  • FIG. 3 shows a delivery system 124 for the delivery of a processing device, such as a laying device 2 after FIG. 1 or a contacting device 70 after FIG. 2 , Such a feed system 124 permits linear movement of the processing apparatus in an x, y, or z direction. According to this understanding, the x-direction corresponds to the horizontal transport direction in the longitudinal direction of a machine bed, the y-direction is the horizontal direction across the machine bed, ie transversely to the x-direction, and the z-direction corresponds to the vertical to the machine bed, ie in z Direction takes place a height adjustment. With the arrangement of three feed systems 124, the processing device is thus individually displaceable in all directions.
  • The feed system 124 has a guided on a longitudinal guide 126 connecting carriage 128 for connection and displacement of the processing device. In this case, the connection of the processing device via a corresponding hole pattern 130 on the connecting carriage 128. Furthermore, the feed system 124 has a drive 134 for driving the connecting carriage 128, which is arranged on a separately formed from the longitudinal guide 126 base plate 132.
  • The drive 134 is referred to as a piezo motor, i. a piezo-leg motor, executed by the connecting carriage 128 is longitudinally displaceable. The drive 134 has a multiplicity of fingers 136 or legs, the so-called piezo-legs, which, when the drive 134 is energized, form an s-shaped, ideally sinusoidal, path. In each case, a finger 136 acts on a front side of a slider 138, which is thus displaced linearly.
  • The slider 138 is preferably made of ceramic. In order to prevent deformation of the slider 138 when pressure is applied to one of the fingers 136, it bears against a guide shoulder 140 in the region of the drive 134 with its rear side. With a free, remote from the drive 134 end portion it is attached to a guide carriage 142 which runs in a longitudinal guide 144.
  • The guide carriage 142 is connected to the connecting carriage, so that the longitudinal displacements transmitted from the slider 138 to the guide carriage 142 are forwarded to the connecting carriage 138 and thus to the machining device. Preferably the carriages 138, 142 are interconnected via a strain gauge 146.
  • The strain gauge 146 is preferably designed as a force meter and is used to measure the displacement parameters, such as displacement force. It is preferably provided in delivery systems 124 in the z-direction and designed such that it also has damping properties. For example, known strain gauge sensors are conceivable. These sensors usually have an E-shaped geometry, wherein a pressure sensor for measuring the pressure developed by the drive 134 and transmitted by the slide 138 is arranged on the middle beam of the E. The two outer beams of the E allow a deformation and thus a damping, preferably in the range of about 100 microns, so that certain force overshoots are compensated.
  • Thus, additional damping elements such as compression springs between the carriages 138, 146 can be dispensed with. The omission of such damping elements has the advantage that no disturbing vibrations are introduced into the processing device and the high dynamics of the piezoelectric motor 134 can be transmitted virtually unfiltered onto the connecting carriage 128. Consequently, corrective action can be taken quickly and immediately in a laying and / or contacting process, so that particularly tight manufacturing tolerances can be maintained.
  • FIG. 4 shows a laying and contacting unit 117 with a laying device 119 and a contacting device 70 for producing a transponder unit by means of direct contacting. When directly contacting a wire 4 is contacted directly with pads of a chip, which requires very high degrees of accuracy. This means that the usual chip modules for enlarging the connection areas of the chip are dispensed with. Of course, however, a combination of the contacting device 70 with the under FIG. 1 described laying device 2 conceivable.
  • Basically, the laying device 118 according to the FIG. 4 as the above-described laying device 2 according to the FIG. 1 provided with an axial feed of a wire 4 and a coaxial wire guide, a conically tapered sonotrode 119, an aerostatic bearing means 48 and a gripping feed means 62 for feeding and threading the wire 4 in the passageway.
  • The main difference to the laying device 2 after the FIG. 1 is that an ultrasonic converter 120 is not coaxial, but laterally attached to the sonotrode 119. The ultrasonic converter 120 is quasi offset laterally to the longitudinal axis of the sonotrode 119, so that ultrasonic vibrations horizontally, ie transversely to its longitudinal axis and thus parallel to the laying plane of the wire 4, are introduced into the sonotrode 119 and the wire 4 thus by applying horizontal vibrations in the Substrate is "rubbed".
  • On the shaft 123 of the sonotrode 119, the bearing device 48 is attached to the front side, so that consequently the axial wire guide does not extend through the ultrasound converter 120.
  • The lateral ultrasonic device 120 has a screwed on a narrow side converter horn 122, with which it engages around the extended shaft 123 of the sonotrode 119 by clamping. The clamping is for example by Can be produced that the converter horn 120 is formed as an axially slotted ring, which is by means of clamping screws frictionally on the shaft 123 can be arranged.
  • The ultrasonic converter 120 is floating, for example by means of the above-described air bearing, accommodated in a holding element, not shown, by means of which the entire laying device 117 is supported. Thus, the ultrasonic converter 120 and the sonotrode 112 can perform free movements in operation. Due to the lateral arrangement of the ultrasound converter 120, the latter and the sonotrode 119 can be made even smaller and lighter in weight, enabling even higher ultrasound frequencies, for example beyond 100 kHz. In such a case, the sonotrode 119 in the region of the outlet opening 46 of the passage channel has a maximum amplitude in the transverse direction of about 10 microns. Thus, new processing methods such as the Direktkontaktierverfahren invention and corresponding transponder units can be realized.
  • The laying device 118 and the contacting device 70 are arranged in a holder, not shown, which is positioned in a central axis system. The holder can be delivered in x-direction and y-direction. In the z direction, the devices 70, 118 are individually deliverable. Preferably, each delivery system according to the invention is a delivery system according to the invention FIG. 3 used, so that absolutely accurate and highly dynamic power rides are possible.
  • In a method according to the invention for forming a transponder unit by means of direct contacting, ie for connecting the end sections directly to the connection surfaces of a chip without the use of a Chip module, a chip is positioned in a punched-out chip window of a substrate. In order to prevent a relative change in position of the chip in the chip window, this can be secured with an adhesive in the chip window. Subsequently, by means of the feed device 62, a wire 4 is threaded axially into the bearing device 62 and thus fed to the sonotrode 12. For laying the wire 4, heated compressed air is blown into the air bearing device 48 and the ultrasonic converter 120 is driven, preferably at about 100 kHz, so that the sonotrode 119 is subjected to horizontal ultrasonic vibrations and the wire 4 is "rubbed" into the substrate. The free end portion of the wire 4 is fixed and guided the wire over a first pad of the chip. After crossing the first connection surface, the contacting device 70 is activated and the wire 4 is welded to the connection surface. The laying of the wire 4 under the application of ultrasound is continued until the desired number of wire windings or the wire spool has been laid. Finally, the wire 4 is passed over the threaded windings and over a second pad of the chip. It can not result in a short circuit due to the insulation of the wire 4 when crossing the already installed windings. To contact the wire 4 with the second pad, the contacting device 70 is driven again. By depressing the wire 4 during welding to the thermode tip 75, the wire is heated, deformed and thus welded to the second pad. To sever the wire after successful laying and welding, the thermode tip 75 is held depressed on the wire 4. Subsequently, the feed device 62 grips the wire 4 and performs a backward movement, so that the wire 4 is loaded in tension and in the region of deformation by the thermode tip 75, ie in the region the weld, is torn. Thus, the transponder unit is completed and can be removed from the laying and contacting unit 117.
  • Alternatively, when crossing the laid wire windings or when crossing the pads, the ultrasonic application of the wire 4 can be suspended.
  • Throughout the process, the individual laying and contacting steps are controlled by an optical monitoring device. In the case of impermissible actual deviations from the nominal deviations, the delivery systems are controlled accordingly, so that the impermissible actual deviations are corrected or prevented from the beginning by an immediate readjustment.
  • FIG. 5 shows a manufacturing plant 148 according to the invention for producing a plurality of transponder units.
  • The manufacturing facility 148 includes a machine bed 150 for transporting a utility 152. The utility 152 is moved by gripping means 154 in cycles, for example, every 10 seconds to individual processing stations located at consoles 156, 158, 160. Exemplary are in the FIG. 5 only three consoles 156, 158, 160 shown.
  • The brackets 156, 158, 160 are arranged on a longitudinal side of the machine bed 150. Thus, an operator from the opposite longitudinal side of the machine bed 150 has a clear view and free access to the processing stations. The brackets 156, 158, 160 are formed like a cross slide, whereby they are individually movable in the x-direction and in the y-direction. there they are deliverable in the y direction in such a way that the entire width of the useful 152 can be traversed. The delivery can take place, for example, via spindle drives which are connected to corresponding cross slides mounted in the longitudinal guide.
  • Illustrative processing stations are, for example, a stapling station for stapling a carrier web with a film in which chip windows are incorporated, for use, a placement station for populating the utility with chips, a laying station for laying wires on the utility and a contacting station for contacting the wires with the Crisps. In this case, the individual processing stations consist of a multiplicity of stapling devices, equipping devices, laying devices 2 FIG. 1 and contactors 70 according to FIG. 2 together.
  • The individual devices are each flat next to each other and behind each other, i. in the x and in the y direction, arranged on the brackets 156, 158, 160, whereby a high productivity can be achieved. For example, it is possible to arrange 10 devices on a respective console 156, 158, 160.
  • A delivery of the devices in the z-direction is carried out individually via a respective individually assigned delivery system FIG. 3 ,
  • On the machine bed 150 is initially arranged a film dancing station 160 for punching chip windows. It is preferably a window punch which can be displaced in the x direction, whereby distortions are prevented and very high accuracies can be achieved.
  • Opposite the console 158 for receiving the loading station, a conventional module punching station 164 for punching the chips with the chip modules from an delivered transport unit is arranged on the machine bed 150.
  • Further, on the machine bed 150, a cutting station 166 for cutting the benefit 152 into handleable processing units for simplified further processing, such as lamination, is disposed. The cutting station 166 has an ultrasonic knife and is freely programmable, that is, without conversion, the cutting station 166 can perform roll-to-roll or roll-to-roll processing.
  • To produce a transponder unit, a film is passed through the film dancing station 162, in which the chip windows are punched out to receive the chips with the chip modules. After punching, the film is fed to the stapling console 156. At the same time, a carrier web is guided under the film punching station 162 to the stapling console 156. In the stapling console 156, the film and carrier web are stitched together to a utility 150 and further conveyed to the placement console 158. In the assembly console 158, the chips punched out by the module punching station 164 with the chip modules are inserted into the chip windows. Subsequently, the wire windings are laid at the laying console 160 on the utility 152 and connected to the not shown Kontaktierkonsole with the chips. Finally, a protective film is fed and stapled with the benefit 152. In the cutting station 166, the utility 152 is then cut into a plurality of hand-held processing units and removed from the machine bed 148 for lamination, for example.
  • In the under FIG. 4 direct contacting method described by the use of the laying and contacting after the FIG. 4 the laying console 160 and the Kontaktierkonsole are combined into a single console, so that the four consoles are reduced accordingly by a factor of 1 on three consoles. It should also be noted that then the module punching station 164 does not punch out the chips with the chip modules, but only the chips, as on the chip modules as under FIG. 4 described can be omitted. Accordingly, an adaptation of the foil dancing station 162 is required in order to reduce the area of the chip windows to be punched out.
  • Depending on the material of the film, it may be advantageous to improve the adhesion of the wire windings on the film to provide the film with a coating prior to laying the wire. The coating allows the use of materials for the installation of wire windings, which are only partially suitable due to their poor installation properties. An exemplary material is Teslin®, which is known for its very good weathering, temperature and moisture resistance, but only allows poor adhesion of the wire windings. However, when applying a corresponding coating, the adhesion can be improved to such an extent that films made of this material also permit very good wire laying.
  • The application of the coating can be made over the entire surface or in certain areas, such as the wire insertion areas, of the film. An exemplary coating thickness is about 30μm. The coating material preferably cures under ultraviolet light. An exemplary coating material is polyethylene. The coating is applied in a coating station 163 by means of, for example, a Spray, coating, doctor blade, screen printing, pad printing or metering technique as shown in FIG FIG. 5 However, depending on the chosen coating technique, it is also conceivable to arrange the coating station 163 between the stapling console 156 and the mounting console 158.
  • For curing the coating, it is advantageous if the stapled-together benefit 150 before the placement console 158 passes through a buffer zone, for example in the form of a U-shaped arc, before it is fed to the placement console 158.
  • The FIGS. 6 and 7 show a second embodiment of a manufacturing plant according to the invention 168. As in the above-described manufacturing plant 148 according to the FIG. 5 are on one side of a machine bed 150 consoles 156, 158, 160 arranged for receiving the processing stations according to the invention. The consoles 156, 158, 160 have the same structure and the same possibilities of movement in the x, y and z directions as those of the production facility 148 FIG. 5 so that in this respect no repetitive explanations are given, but reference is made to the above explanations.
  • An essential feature of this manufacturing facility 168 is that a plurality of transponder units 184 are fabricated from individual sheets 174 that are manually placed on carriages 172 and pass through the individual consoles 156, 158, 160, with the sheets 174 returned to the home position after processing guided and there manually removed from the carriage 172. That is, the sheets 174 are guided in a circle, wherein the laying on the respective carriage 172 and its support surface 186 and the removal of the respective Carriage 172 is done manually via an operator 176. To illustrate this circular movement of the sheets 174 are in the FIG. 7 Arrows drawn. Due to the manual handling of the sheets 174, this manufacturing unit 168 is particularly suitable for individual small series. According to the right arc 172 in FIG FIG. 6 For example, from one arch 172 sixteen transponder units 184 can be made.
  • The carriages 172 for receiving the sheets 174 to be loaded are movably mounted on the machine bed 150 via a feed 170. In the present embodiment, the sheets 174 are prepared such that they already have windows for receiving a respective chip. The sheets 174 are manually placed on the respective carriage 172 at the starting position by the operator 176 and moved via the carriage 172 successively to the individual consoles 156, 158, 160. As shown in the FIGS. 6 and 7 the carriages 172 move from left to right. For example, at the first console 156, the chips for the transponder units 184 are placed in the windows, at the second console 158 the wires 4 are laid on the transponder units 184 and at the third console 160 the wires 4 are connected at their ends to the respective chip. The application of a protective film can be carried out manually after the return of the sheets 174 to the starting position and after the removal of the sheets 174 by the operator 176.
  • To return the populated sheets 174 to the operator 176, ie to move the carriage 172 as shown in the FIGS. 6 and 7 from right to left, a return 178 is provided, which preferably in an inner space 180 of the machine bed 150 according to the FIG. 7 below the feed 170 extends. The return 178 is connected to the feed 170 via, respectively a lifting device not shown end for lowering and lifting of the carriage 172 in conjunction. When lowering a carriage 172 this, after he has passed through the brackets 156, 158, 160, with the assembled sheets 172 of the according to the FIG. 7 the right end portion of the feed 170 passed to the return 178. When lifting this carriage 172 of the according to the FIG. 7 the left end portion of the return conveyor 178 moves back to its starting position at the operator 176, so that the operator 176 can remove the assembled sheet 174 from the raised carriage 172 and put on this then free carriage 172 a new sheet to be processed 174, which then via the feed 170 the individual consoles 156, 158, 160 can be fed.
